Grand Opening! New AutoMax Location in Wilson, NC

Buying a new car has never been easier for Wilson, North Carolina!

AutoMax is proud to open our third storefront location in Wilson, NC. 

As North Carolinians, many of our current customers and employees have lived and worked all over the Tarheel state. After the success of our first two locations in Youngsville and Henderson, an opportunity to better serve customers in eastern North Carolina just seems natural! 

We’re excited to bring over 30 years of expertise in the car business to the Wilson market.

Our first two stores in Youngsville and Henderson have served tens of thousands of customers over the last 34 years. We think of our customers as our friends at AutoMax, and we think we’ll fit right in in Wilson.

If you’d like to contact our new location, give us a call at (252) 364-3962, or drive by our location at 4711 Nash Street N, Wilson, NC  27896!

What does AutoMax offer?

AutoMax is a Buy Here, Pay Here car lot, meaning we finance all our cars in-house. This allows us to cater to customers who might have trouble getting an auto loan through traditional channels, like new car buyers, or those with an unfavorable credit history.

We don’t care about your credit history, just your ability to repay an auto loan in the present.

Auto loans are uniquely positioned to impact your credit – for better or worse. A buy here, pay here auto loan can help you rebuild your credit by making easy, on-time payments over the life of the loan. We report your credit history to the major credit bureaus to make sure your score improves as quickly as possible!

What is a Buy Here, Pay Here car lot? Who is it for?

“Buy Here Pay Here”, “On-the-lot financing”, “We Finance” – whatever you call it, buy here pay here lots are uniquely positioned to help auto customers reestablish good credit.

Buy Here Pay Here simply means that we finance all our vehicles in-house. This means we get to cut out the middleman of a bank or outside creditor and offer a loan directly to you. 

Certain dealers claim to be “buy here pay here” lots in order to attract low credit customers, while shopping your credit information around to other banks. AutoMax is different. We personally finance every single vehicle sold and do our best to approve as many customers as we can.

If you work to make money each month, and your monthly budget can cover the cost of a vehicle, we can approve you to buy a pre-owned vehicle from us.

AutoMax is the best Buy Here Pay Here lot in Wilson, NC
